Economic growth and job creation are the keys to making California a great place to live, work and do business. To help lawmakers focus on the full ramifications of proposed laws, the California Chamber of Commerce identifies each year the legislation that will hinder job creation. The job killer list highlights those bills that truly are going to cost the state jobs.


Since starting the job killer bill list in 1997, the CalChamber has prevented 93% of these onerous proposals from becoming law. Every job killer stopped means the state will at least do no more harm to businesses and their ability to compete in the national and global markets.
